My name is Donna Johnson, I am an entrepreneur and philanthropist.
One of the most amazing relationships I have is with my granddaughter LilyBelle. Feel like she gave me a reason live. I had been home bound for some years; just getting out to work. I was dealing with osteoarthritis in both hips, I weighed 400 and I had other health issues. I was part of Master Key Experience when she was born; and my pivotal personal needs were autonomy and true health. I remember looking out my poster board on several occasions wondering how I was going to get there; then covid happened and I lost my job. Lol! You ask me, I think God really has a sense of humor. I lost my job, got insurance and money flowed in, more than when I was working. I took almost 2 years off and my only job was my health. Today, I have two new hips and I’m down 160 pounds. What an awesome feeling to go play the park with Lily and so much more.
While I was off, I started a non-profit Let’s Leave a Legacy. The goal of my organization is to provide a safe place for school aged children to go after school, providing tutoring, after school programs such as theater, dance, sewing, and so much more. Until I get my building to house Let’s Leave a Legacy, I will partner with other non-profits to raise funds for programs. I want to provide scholarships for school and college. She gives me a reason to keep going.
